A Towering Task: The Story of the Peace Corps is a feature documentary covering the almost 60-year history of the agency. From the Peace Corps’ founding under John F. Kennedy, through tough times during the Vietnam War and a surprising revival during the Reagan administration, to today’s Peace Corps Volunteers serving at the forefront of some of the most pressing themes facing the global community, A Towering Task takes viewers on a journey of what it means to be a global citizen. Historians, journalists, former staff and volunteers, and host country nationals come together to tell a story of many voices, a story about the enormous challenge of building peace. Narrated by Annette Bening. Following the screening, Alana DeJoseph, the films producer/director, and producer/screenwriter Shana Kelly will take audience questions.
